Description

In the years around 1900, people chose their jewelry according to the occasion. First, there was a distinction between daytime jewelry made of gold and pearls or small colored stones, or evening jewelry with richer diamonds and gemstones. Secondly, the respective clothing conditioned certain pieces of jewelry. For example, for an elegant daytime costume with a high-necked blouse, the present collar brooch would have been recommended, which can still be worn in many ways today. As the name suggests, this type of brooch was originally attached to the center of the collar of a blouse and completed the appearance of its wearer. Worn in this way, we repeatedly encounter brooches of this type in old photographs from the turn of the century. The first wearer of the brooch seems to have been modern-minded, because the piece of jewelry is designed in the then new Art Nouveau style. The dynamically flowing frame encloses a graceful little plant in its center in a swinging design. A shimmering natural pearl of a slightly baroque shape acts as a flower, emphasizing the naturalness of the design. The piece is made of 14-karat gold, which was provided with an additional fine gold plating. According to its hallmark, the brooch was made in Germany. It is in very good condition and came to us from Minden.
